The Moses® sleep disorder device holds the maxillary and mandible in a fixed position with a mechanism on each side to allow titration of the mandible in continuous increments (1/8 mm per turn) up to 6mm from starting position. While the Moses® appliance has been used as an obstructive sleep apnea treatment, it is also effective for patients who snore.
Benefits of the Moses® Appliance
Many patients prefer the Moses® appliance because it is comfortable to wear. Because there is no material in the anterior or the palate, patients are able to talk, sip water, and close their lips while wearing it. There is also more room for the tongue than in some other devices. The Moses® is cleared by the FDA as a treatment for obstructive sleep apnea and snoring.
